R. Daniel Ehrmann was an Austrian rabbi; born at Muttersdorf, Bohemia, in 1816; died at Brünn Nov. 15, 1882. After studying at Budapest and Prague, he became rabbi and preacher at Kuttenplan and Dürrmaul in 1843; and a year later succeeded Abraham Kohn in Hohenems. He was rabbi at Böhmisch-Leipa from 1852 to 1860, when he resigned his office and, removing to Prague, engaged in the book business. In Prague and Brünn he edited for many years the Jewish periodical "Das Abendland." In 1867 he was called as teacher of religion to Brünn, where he remained until his death. Ehrmann's works include: "Betrachtungen über Jüdische Verhältnisse" (Budapest, 1841); "Gebete für Israelitische Frauenzimmer" (Prague, 1845); "Beitrüge zu einer Geschichte der Schulen und der Kultur Unter den Juden" (Prague, 1846); "Geschichte der Israeliten von den Urältesten Zeiten bis auf die Gegenwart," 2 vols. (Brünn, 1869; 2d ed., 1871); "Aus Palästina und Babylon: Eine Sammlung von Sagen, Legenden, Allegorien, Fabeln, Erzählungen, Gleichnissen, u. s. w. aus Talmud und Midrash" (Vienna, 1880). He also wrote a story, "Die Tante"; and contributed to the "Orient," "Kokebe Yizhak," and other periodicals.
